Meanwhile back in Brighton students from Masters in Architectural and Urban Design were showcasing some of their projects from 2018-2019 in a small exhibition entitled Tracing Spaces. This exhibition is now open to the public from the 7th -11th October.

Professor Charles Holland from M’Arch Studio 1 has announced the line up for this years exciting public lecture series which open to the whole school and to the public. The series features nine excellent, high-profile practices and people all doing important, engaging and socially committed work that chimes with many of our school’s core interests.

The first lecture is next Tuesday 15th October and will be by Maria Smith and Phin Harper, curators of the current Oslo Architecture Triennale. The title of the Triennale and the lecture is ‘Enough: The Architecture of Degrowth’, which directly addresses pressing issues of climate change and species extinction which are being debated across the school daily.

The lectures will take place on Tuesday evenings at 6pm in The Gallery at Mithras House.
